The Collaborative Chronicles - Ashley Lewchuk, Intentional Space Design

Ashley Lewchuk - Designer & Owner of Intentional Space Design

Swedish Door’s “The Collaborative Chronicles” series provides an in-depth look at the history, skills, expertise, and creative talents of our trusted Partners.


From Passion to Profession

Ashley Lewchuk joined Swedish Door with her first project just a few years ago and has since become a key Design Partner in the Ottawa area. Her journey into design began with a passion for transforming her own living spaces, starting with a major basement renovation.

“I have always had a passion for decorating and designing in my own home, but it was only in the last 5-6 years that I realized I could use my strengths to help others,” Ashley shares. “The most rewarding part is gaining my clients' trust throughout the process.”



Design Philosophy and Inspiration

Ashley's design philosophy is deeply influenced by her love for nature and travel. She draws inspiration from the natural world, incorporating elements of earth, cotton, and wood to create harmonious and inviting spaces. Her designs aim to bring the serenity of the outdoors into every home.

Travel also plays a significant role in her creativity. Exposure to diverse cultures and design styles enriches her work, allowing her to translate her experiences into unique design elements.

“I don't actively search for inspiration, but I often find it in nature and my travels. I incorporate organic materials, plants, and earthy color tones into my designs. I love mixing old and new elements to create spaces that are organic and inviting,” Ashley notes.



Client-Centered Design

Ashley’s designs reflect the unique character of her clients, combining warmth and personality. Her thorough understanding of her clients' needs and her attention to detail have earned her a loyal clientele.

“I aim to create spaces that evoke comfort and joy, bringing people together to create memories. I collaborate with my clients to design spaces that reflect them as individuals. I genuinely care about delivering the best possible outcome within their needs and budget,” Ashley explains.


High-Quality Design on a Budget

One of Ashley’s strategies for maintaining quality while adhering to budgets is using Swedish Door products. “People often want a custom look for their renovations but can’t always afford custom millwork. Swedish Door offers many door front styles that provide a custom look within budget,” she says.




Ashley Lewchuk’s journey from personal decorator to professional designer is a testament to her passion for creating beautiful and meaningful spaces. Her work, influenced by nature and travel, and her commitment to client satisfaction make her a standout in the design industry. Ashley’s story inspires those who dare to turn their passions into lifelong pursuits.
